ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to investigate the possibility of predicting the health of a child during its first year by using the mother’s emotional intelligence and the level of her attachment to the child. Serving as test subjects were 50 mother-child pairs during the first year of life and 50 mother-child pairs during the second year of life (altogether 200 individuals). It was shown that the likelihood of dismissing a diagnosis given to a child at a maternity clinic depends on the level of the mother’s acceptance of the child and not on her emotional intelligence and anxiety.
